"consumer reports" incredibly rare that they would come out with a do not buy warning for consumers. often they say this car is better than that car but to flat out say don't buy this car because it's dangerous is something in a new league. the last time they did it was 2001. toyota of course, tamron, under incredible pressure with the gas pedal controversy and critics who say they didn't respond fast enough to that. within hours of "consumer reports" coming out with this warning to consumers, they, themselves, put a stop sales order to their dealerships nationwide. you can't go
